Animals people ride or pay to ride around the world. I started with the most common (horse). Then from there I went to what would be the funnest or coolest to ride.
They're really fun to ride - SirSheep
Such graceful, majestic and powerful beasts. The horse is my favourite animal. - Britgirl
Humans should be at the top of the list - judo8alex
Probably my favorite animal. - Metal_Treasure
African elephants are elephants of the genus Loxodonta. The genus consists of two extant species: the African bush elephant, L. africana, and the smaller African forest elephant, L. cyclotis.
They even stick their foot out to help you get on! I would love to ride an elephant. People ride them in Africa and Asia. - THC13
A camel is an even-toed ungulate within the genus Camelus, bearing distinctive fatty deposits known as "humps" on its back.
I love camels! They look so cool, and owners have found them to be friendly and playful. - Crwth
The ostrich or common ostrich is either of two species of large flightless birds native to Africa, the only living member of the genus Struthio, which is in the ratite family. In 2014, the Somali ostrich was recognized as a distinct species.
These birds are the fastest on the planet. They top out in the low 40s but can sustain a speed of 31 mph. I think riding one would be fun. People ride them in Australia and Africa. - THC13
The donkey or ass is a domesticated member of the horse family, Equidae. The wild ancestor of the donkey is the African wild ass, E. africanus. The donkey has been used as a working animal for at least 5000 years.
Donkeys are nice, I wish that they got even half of the praise that horses get. - Crwth
Yeah Donkeys are very nice, innocent animals so why should we be riding them? - ParasN2000
The giraffe is an African even-toed ungulate mammal, the tallest living terrestrial animal and the largest ruminant.
In South Africa you can ride a giraffe. - THC13
The reindeer, also known as the caribou in North America, is a species of deer with circumpolar distribution, native to Arctic, sub-Arctic, tundra, boreal and mountainous regions of northern Europe, Siberia and North America. This includes both sedentary and migratory populations.
Reindeer can be rode on in Finland. - THC13
Zebras are several species of African equids united by their distinctive black and white striped coats.
Zebras are rode in China. Cool but nothing too special I guess. Like riding a striped horse. - THC13
Yes, it's basically a horse - Metal_Treasure
11 Water Buffalo
People ride them in The Philippines, Vietnam, and Thailand. - THC13
A domesticated bovid used in Asia - the Himalayan region, Tibet, Pakistan, India, Mongolia and Russia - Metal_Treasure
13 Giant Tortoise
Why would you want to ride one when you can walk faster? But yeah, people ride giant tortoises in Kenya. - THC13
Dolphins are a widely distributed and diverse group of fully aquatic marine mammals. They are an informal grouping within the order Cetacea, excluding whales and porpoises, so to zoologists the grouping is paraphyletic.
Even though your not sitting on it's back (your actually being pulled), the dolphin is still taking you for a "ride". You can ride a dolphin in America, Mexico, Australia and many more places around the world. However there is something about a captive dolphin that doesn't sit right with me. If you want to ride a dolphin, just hitch a ride with one in the wild. Just kidding. But people claim to have done this. - THC13
The lion is one of the big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. The commonly used term African lion collectively denotes the several subspecies in Africa.
Yeah, so apparently you can ride one in Argentina...I'll pass. - THC13
Cattle—colloquially cows—are the most common type of large domesticated ungulates. They are a prominent modern member of the subfamily Bovinae, are the most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified collectively as Bos taurus.
A rhinoceros, often abbreviated to rhino, is one of any five extant species of odd-toed ungulates in the family Rhinocerotidae, as well as any of the numerous extinct species.
The tiger is the largest cat species, most recognizable for their pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside.
Sigfried and Roy rode them in their Vegas show
The common hippopotamus, or hippo, is a large, mostly herbivorous mammal in sub-Saharan Africa, and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae, the other being the pygmy hippopotamus.
Humans are not exactly wild animals, but they are not domesticated either. Humans are proven to be the most intelligent species of animals on Earth. Humans' colours vary from almost pepper black to milky white.
Humans usually give kids rides on their backs
The sheep is a quadrupedal, ruminant mammal typically kept as livestock. Like all ruminants, sheep are members of the order Artiodactyla, the even-toed ungulates.
The domestic goat is a subspecies of goat domesticated from the wild goat of southwest Asia and Eastern Europe.
Bears are mammals of the family Ursidae. Bears are classified as caniforms, or doglike carnivorans, with the pinnipeds being their closest living relatives.
They ride them in some countries
